The Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) announced Monday it has hired Meg Burns as Senior Vice President of Mortgage Policy. Burns joins Ed DeMarco, former Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) director, who recently became the president of FSR’s Housing Policy Council (HPC).
Most recently, Burns has been a partner at The Collingwood Group, an advisory firm that helps financial services companies comply with, interpret, and operate effectively within the ever-changing legislative and regulatory environment.
Prior to joining FSR, Burns served as senior associate director in FHFA’s Office of Housing and Regulatory Policy. In this role, she oversaw many policy and regulatory initiatives regarding Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s single-family and multifamily housing programs.
Burns has also served as the director of HUD’s Office of Single Family Program Development.
FSR represents many of the country’s largest financial institutions and is a leading advocacy organization for the country’s financial services industry. It created HPC to advocate specifically for the mortgage and housing interests of its member companies.
